Question about Romanian Visa.

I'm planning to go to Romania for wedding and going to apply for Romanian Visa with RTD only, but the website asked me to upload my "Criminal Records", does anyone aware with criminal records is and look like? Thank you
They mean provide a 'police' report. You have two options, submit a report from your local police OR submit a report from the FBI. I once saw my own FBI report a few years back...it was blank: The report still had all the sections: state convictions, civil suits, etc...but since I had no record, all the sections were blank. The report is several pages long....so you will probably need to submit a summary of that report... The local police version report will be similar (they all look for crimes you committed in the same databases), but could be shorter. Hope this helps.

Thank you, I think I'm gonna go to police station then, easier than FBI I'm sure
 
Did anyone get rejected here for Schengen visa? My sister just got rejected from French Schengen and I'm wondering if it has to do something with RTD. She had all the documents in place.
 
My trip update.
JFK (NYC) to Amsterdam with KLM/Delta crew: boarded me easily, very professional & friendly.
Netherlands let me in in 5 min, basic questions.
Flight back to JFK (NYC) with KLM/Delta/Air France from Amsterdam via London: extra security check.
JFK let me in pretty fast, the only thing is that general line was VERY long...

You didn't need a visa to transit through London? Which airport?

Transiting without a visa is possible for:
Passengers with a travel document issued to refugees transiting through London: Gatwick (LGW), Heathrow (LHR) or Manchester (MAN) with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight to a third country on the same calendar day. They must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination.

BUT ATTN! Check also with your nationality. Maybe it also depends.
 
The problem with "must stay in the international transit area of the airport" is figuring out whether you have to leave the terminal or not. Some agents won't tell you. I went through this recently because I was trying to book a trip with Aer Lingus transiting through Ireland. I called, emailed, and Tweeted Aer Lingus and NOBODY gave a straight answer. I literally had to go to Dublin Airport's website, and figure out what terminal the flights in question were leaving from, lol. This made me afraid the gate agent wouldn't know any better. So ended up booking with United to AMS via Chicago ORD.

Yesterday they arranged special bus for me, so I could travel from one terminal to another :)
 
LOL. No, I mean, I understood what you meant, I'm just baffled. If that were to happen here, the traveler would be detained by CBP and escorted onto the same plane to send him back where they arrived from.

probably, I think it's because some of UK airports just allow this, and they have already a plan lol
 
So, for those of you who've traveled to Ámsterdam. What kind of Schengen visa is on your RTD, single or multiple entry?

My bf now wants us to go to Andorra, which is not in the Schengen zone, and we're having trouble figuring out if we can go there and I'd be able to pop back into France.

You don’t need a visa for NL
 
Yes, I know you don't have to get a visa in advance. But when you enter the NL, your passport gets stamped with a Schengen visitor visa/stamp nonetheless. I need to know if it's a single entry or multiple entry stamp.

It's just an entry stamp for a visa-waiver entry. You can leave and re-enter the same day and you'll just get another stamp. You legally cannot go to countries that require visas for RTD holders (Spain and France), so entry to Andorra would also technically be disallowed. People on this board have been able to go to those countries after entering Schengen via the Netherlands or Germany, and it's entirely possible you'd be allowed into Andorra (there was border control when I went there in 2006, and I expect there still is), but that would be a chance you'd be taking without getting a visa.
